Offering the gift of a whiter smile over the holiday season is perhaps the most beautiful gift you will give this year. You are giving someone the brimming confidence to smile as big as they like, and you are teaching them that they matter in your world. Bright white teeth is something we all desire to have.

A customized, take-home whitening treatment from Cardinal Dental Group can give you or your loved one a vibrant, confident smile in just a few weeks. A bright smile for the new year!

Teeth can be whitened in the comfort of your home. Our professional whitening kit involves a comfortable, custom-fitted tray. Into this tray, you will place a special whitening gel and keep in place for the amount of time your dentist recommends. After just a single session, you may begin to see improvement, and after a couple of weeks, you will see a completely white smile!

You can maintain your newly white smile with occasional follow-up treatments. We use this whitening technique because it is the most comfortable for patients, and according to university studies, the most effective.


Why might a person’s  teeth become stained?

So if you brush, floss and visit your dentist regularly then why are your teeth still discolored? This happens because the outer layers of your teeth get stained over the years by consumption of certain foods, soda, wine and smoking.

When these outside sources of staining are left to sit on the teeth all day until your next brushing, the dentin on your teeth becomes yellowish or darkened. The best way to help your stained discolored teeth is with one of the easiest cosmetic dentistry procedures, professional teeth whitening.

Contributing factors to yellowing, stained teeth:

  • Tetracycline based antibiotics used before the age of 8 years old
  • Excessive exposure to fluoride as a child
  • Internal bleeding due to trauma
  • Discoloration due to a health condition
  • Natural aging- as time goes by enamel gets thinner and thinner and will get a yellowish hue
  • Soda
  • Wine
  • Smoking
  • Coffee
  • Tea
